This super successful offer paired with Max Sackheim’s hyper-testing methodology resulted in dozens of unique, full-page space ads for the same course.
It’s a terrific ad in the self-improvement area even through today’s direct response lens.
He gambles that a “lucky break” will come to him in – the course of time
MOST men live in the HOPE that their “lucky break” will come TOMORROW or NEXT WEEK or NEXT YEAR. They gamble that FATE, some day, some way, will make them rich! They risk their whole lives on what may COME to them in- the course of TIME. .
This is a WORSE form of GAMBLING than gambling for MONEY with a card sharp or a “three shell game” expert.
Gambling on what TIME and FATE have in store for you is more costly than any other form of gambling known.
You lose MORE than money. You lose your SELF-RESPECT. You lose the self-respect of those about you.
And as each year passes your CHANCE to amount to anything becomes slimmer and slimmer. .
You get discouraged. You begin to feel that fate is AGAINST you. You complain secretly about your ill luck. Perhaps you hide your shortcomings behind a whole flock of easy EXCUSES.
But the hard, cold world doesn’t care about you. You’ve got to look out for YOURSELF.
Time alone cannot help you. If it could, EVERY man over 70 would be rich.
You cannot COUNT on luck or fate or circumstances. If you could, EVERYBODY would get rich at some time or other.
Your life is too precious to waste away WAITING for “something to turn up.”
There’s ONE SURE WAY—yes, ONLY one sure way—to get what you want .out of life.
Nothing can help you but your own BRAIN. Make your brain just a little bit more effective and you will MULTIPLY your earning power.
There is NO LIMIT to what the human brain can accomplish. Scientists and psychologists tell us we use only about TEN PER CENT of our brain power. Ninety per cent is unused. It lies dormant. The longer it is unused, – the harder it becomes for us to use it. For the mind is like a muscle. It grows in power through exercise and use. It weakens and deteriorates with idleness.
What can you DO about it? That is the question you are asking yourself. Here is a suggestion.
